At the 2022 Premium Cigar Association (PCA) Trade Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Oveja Negra Brands will introduce a new extension to its Black Works Studio Killer Bee line known as Shaolin. The cigar is a three-wrapper barber pole in a belicoso format. The cigar will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis to retailers attending the 2022 PCA Trade Show.

Black Works Studio Killer Bee Shaolin  features a barber-pole of three wrappers: Mexican San Andres, Connecticut Shade, and Candela over a Honduran Habano binder and Nicaraguan fillers. The cigar comes in one size – a 5 1/2 x 46 belicoso. It is available in 24-count boxes with pricing set at $13.50 per cigar. Production comes from the company’s factory, Fabrica Oveja Negra in Estelí, Nicaragua.

“The Killer Bee line is in a constant state of evolution. It lends itself to a lot of different variations and the next one in line is the Shaolin. The Shaolin is a slightly tweaked version of the Killer Bee blend wrapped in a mix of Mexican San Andres, Connecticut, and Candela. The result is a bold but elegant cigar that has layers of complexity,” says James Brown, creator of BLTC/BLK WKS and partner at Fabrica Oveja Negra.

Other releases under the Black Works Studio Killer Bee line include: Killer Bee, Killer Bee Green Hornet, Killer Bee Kato, Killer Bee Connecticut, and Killer Bee Swarm.

Black Works Studio Killer Bee Shaolin will ship later this summer. The PCA Trade Show opens July 9, 2022 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
